, ohio, with the boss performing right now. not to be outdone, mitt romney has an event in columbus himself just a few hours from now featuring the marshall tucker band. tough choice there for columbus voters. and if the polls are any indication, america is split down the middle in our new poll. the president just edges romney 48% to 47% among likely voters. well within the margin of error. another look at polls confirms this race is pretty tight. with that in mind, the final day of campaigning is a whirlwind tour. mitt romney is at his second event in virginia today. and he said real change will begin with his victory tomorrow. >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want four more years of the last four years? or do you want real change? >> virginia of course a state that mitt romney desperately wanted to have locked up months ago. the old dominion very tight. but it is far from the only tossup state and it was at a massive 18,000 strong rally at madison, wisconsin, that the president fought to defend his mantle of change you can believe in in stark contrast to
romney. >> sold chryslers to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. ohio, i'm not ready to give up on the fight. >> i don't know how close you're watching the president's campaign. my guess is you're not seeing a lot of msnbc, but if you -- i'm not familiar with precisely with exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it is. ♪ >> we are in the final four days to the presidential election and it's all come down to four words with four letters, ohio, ohio, ohio, ohio. in the next four days the president and mitt romney will visit ohio on no less than six separate occasions. the president has just wrapped -- actually he's just about to start his third rally in the state and you can feel the energy of this final push with a fired up crowd and a president ready to go. >> you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change. but you know what i believe. you

presidential campaign, mitt romney is desperate for more time. just touching down in pennsylvania, and earlier making a last-minute dash to ohio wf his number two paul ryan. i guess they just couldn't wait to get back to that local favorite wendy's. and as if you needed to know the importance of ohio, guess who was on the same cleveland tarmac? that would be vice president joe biden after voting this morning in delaware. after the polls, the ads, the rallies, conventions, the debates, zingers, flips, flops, and all the gaffes, it's all come down to this day and, my, what a ride it's been. >> i like being able to fire people. >> contraception can cost a woman over $3,000. >> slur a slut, right. >> purple mountains. severely conservative. >> like an etch-a-sketch. >> morning y'all. >> lift the shadow of deportation. >> basically upheld the health care law. >> eliminate obama care. >> all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation -- >> there are a few things that were disconcerting. >> mitt romney. >> i did not make a mistake with this guy. >> my veins run with cheese.
an electoral loss would provide a wake-up call for the defeated party. but in the case of mitt romney, it appears to have opened the door to another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. a sort of twilight zone. in the realm of reality, there is the president who has just left new york's staten island touring areas damaged by the storm and pledging much needed federal support. and then there is the shadow realm where republicans are still stumbling over their loss by doubling down on the very backward, twisted, inverted views that proved to be their undoing. case in point, mitt romney. who told his top donors on a conference call that the president only won by doling out freebies to key constituencies. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> that base coalition, of course, including young voters, african-americans, and hispanics. >> what the president did is he gave them two thin

. this afternoon the president hosted his vanquished rival, mitt romney. no word yet on if mr. romney found the cookies up to his rig rouse standards or how many white house beers the president decided to drink. we're also holding out hope that a savvy waiter or waitress caught at least 47% of the lunch on cell phone video. while in washington romney also met with his former running mate, the marathoner paul ryan, and offered a few kind words about him to the press. >> mr. romney, how was your meeting with mr. ryan today? was it nice to see him? >> that's a greet friend. good to be with him. >> good to be with him? >> always great to see paul ryan. >> while today's lunch was perhaps an opportunity to shake after a hard fought campaign, not everybody was feeling so friendly. take for example john bain mother earlier today slammed the president for campaign style events on the fiscal cliff. >> no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. so right now all eyes are on the white house. the country doesn't need a victory lap. it
romney said? >> i just think it's nuts. i mean, first of all, it's insulting. this would be like walmart having a bad week and going the customers have really been unruly. >> we're in a big hole. we're not getting out of it by comments like that. when you're in a hole, stop digging. he keeps digging. >> we don't need to demonize or stay stupid things. ♪ >> it is a busy monday for politics and policy both here at home and on the world stage. conflict is raging in the middle east, and we'll bring you more on that in just a moment. but first, the president is in cambodia. a presidential first and the third and final stop on his southeast asia tour. he's also made a historic visit to myanmar urging further reforms there. and to thailand where he sought a little divine intervention for budget negotiations that are ongoing in washington. >> yes, we're working on this budget. we're going to need a lot of prayer for that. >> indeed, the prayer of a righteous man is effective, especially with just weeks to the so-called fiscal cliff, and on that front, the president's call to raise tax rates fo
together the most diverse coalition in history, winning a sweep of battleground sta mitt romney to overwhelming defeat. but in his careful and considered speech last night, the president was generous to his opponent and called for the same unity that propelled him to an historic victory just four years ago. >> i believe we can seize this future together. because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions. and than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >> that we are greater than our individual ambitions washaps the most resounding message of this election. with a man who staked everything on the entrepreneurial spirit, finding to his complete mortification, constructed out of papier-mache, the cayman bank statements and positions past, it's only fair to say, yes, mr. romney, you did build that. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> i so wis
speaker has talked about it. mitt romney campaigned on it. >> lowering deductions and closing loopholes. >> eliminate or limit rather deductions and credits and exemptions. cutting out the exemptions and loopholes. >> grow this economy and engage in tax reform. >> simplify the code. >> ywhen you get divorced, thats what happens. ♪ >> welcome back after the thanksgiving holiday and all eyes are on the fast approaching fiscal cliff with republicans possibly maybe looking to make a deal. with the deadline now just 36 days away, some top republicans suggest they could, shock, horror, break with their sacred pledge to grover norquist. >> i'm not obligated on the pledge i made tennesseans aware is just elected that the only thing i'm honoring is the oath that i take when i serve when i'm sworn in this january. >> there's a lot that has been said about this pledge, and i will tell you when i go to the constituents that have elected -- re-elected me, it is not about that pledge. it really is about trying to solve problems. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be maki
agreeing taxes should go up on the rich or on everyone. that includes 40% of those who voted for romney/ryan. so has the gop listened and learned from the voters who defeated them? paul ryan is among the members returning to capitol hill today as congress gets back to work. so what does he have to say? >> it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues, which is the kind of campaign we wanted to run, so we ran the kind of campaign we wanted to run, and it just wasn't enough at the end of the day and we just have to accept that. >> big ideas, big issues that lost. it seems acceptance is the final stage of grief. let's get to our panel now. in washington msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "showdown" and here in new york joy reid, who is managing editor of the grio and william cohen, an author and columnist for the bloomberg view. if i can start with you, joy, if we might take a momentary break from days of lives centcom edition, this week is crucial for the president in terms of setting his agenda for the second term. >> the president now has to
small business melody that we've heard from mitt romney for six years. now, thankfully silenced along with the strains of kid rock's "born free," except, of course, now the lead singer is not romney, it's john boehner. if the speaker didn't get the message of this election, what about the ever erudite commentator and fox news analyst ann coulter. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. >> of course it might equally be said that deriding 47% of the population as feckless freeloaders may be the reason why, as you say, it's now over. let's get right to our panel. here in new york, msnbc political analyst david corn, ana marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and msnbc contributor jared bernsteinbern senior fellow and former economist for vice president joe biden. david, we have had the makers and takers, the moochers and smoochers, the backers and the slackers, the fakers and the bakers but according to miss coulter it's the parasites who won. >> yes. i think if the republican party wants t
of one mitt romney. losing presidential candidate. who will be enjoying a free government lunch tomorrow at the white house at the invitation of the president. not sure what will be on the menu, but many are betting on a generous serving of crow with a beet salad. let's go to our panel, with him y william cohen, and here in new york is msnbc political analyst jonathan alter, also a columnist for the "bloomberg view." the president is pressing his case hard for a deal on middle class tax relief. secretary geithner will head to the hill. is john boehner now facing the rising tide against his yacht owners and the like? >> i think he is. a 60-37 margin on supporting raising taxes on the wealthy is pretty definitive. most issues are not that clear. the republican party just lost a big election. do they want to shrink below independence? they're pretty close. you know, most people identify themselves as democrats. second, republicans. third, independents. the republicans have lost so much ground that they're actually in danger of slipping below independence in terms of party affiliation. this
on the table, but the only thing he said was exactly what mitt romney had been saying for the last years, closing loopholes and reducing deductions. >> and, martin, he still had to walk that back afterwards. professor reich is right here. what the american people need to understand is that we're looking at a political party that for different reasons can sometimes put politics ahead of the people. and the reasons here have to do with the monied interests and the way they represent the 1% from a political perspective. so, again, my hope is that once the tea party congress within -- the tea party caucus within the congress is diminished in the new year, we've gone off the fiscal curb, we can have some reality in the discussions we need to have. >> but professor reich, boehner says there's a stalemate. but realistically, is the stalemate between democrats and republicans or is it more between republicans who want to make a deal and those -- >> and grover norquist. >> -- that dr. peterson just referred to, grover norquist, who are hell bent on expediting their own ideology whatever happens?
debate. >> the president was committed -- elected on the basis that he was not romney and romney was a poopy head. >> they're going to defend a bunch of millionaires? >> i was long last week as was virtually every major republican analyst. >> bounce with me. come on, bounce with me a little bit. come on. ♪ >>> bounce with me, indeed. it's the first week after the election, and the big story was supposed to be the looming fiscal cliff. but there's nothing like a high profile sex scandal to distract washington. with headlines dominated today by the abrupt resignation of cia director david petraeus over an extramarital affair. some lawmakers are now calling for an inquiry. we're now learning that high-level officials at the fbi and the justice department were notified in late summer that fbi agents had uncovered the affair that led to petraeus' downfall. it all started in early june when a florida woman named jill kelley pictures here with her husband, petraeus, and his wife, alerted agents to e-mails she described as e-mails. they told kelley, a petraeus family friend, to stop so
stewart, mitt romney, and members of fox news. just to be clear, the president won re-election because, and tell us which, a goody bag of gifts, altered talking points, or hurricane sandy. which was it? >> actually it was the bureau of labor stats messing around with the data. that's what it was. you forgot that one. >> i'm glad you answered that. that's the sole reason he won. >> it has nothing to do with the fact that even as the president pointed out this week, more people than who voted with him agree with him. >> la, la, la, talking points, benghazi, latinos, minorities, gifts, presents, presents, presents. forget about that. richard. contraception. the world appears to have moved on. the president as we know is attempting to address the issue of the financial fiscal cliff. he's traveling overseas, but how long will it be that his opponents will hang onto this benghazi controversy? give us an assessment of how long you think that will be? >> i think there are some different voices in the republican party emerging. listen to what the republican governors are saying. people who have
. >> the republican party has not developed an alternative idea set other than what mitt romney and paul ryan were campaigning on. ♪ america, america >> are we going to continue to making our case? >> i will say this, i can never, ever find my car in a garage. ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ >> with frantic and frenetic behind-the-scenes negotiations as both sides work against the clock trying to reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff that is fast approaching. the president is trying to ramp up public pressure on congress to accept his ideas for debt reduction in. in the coming days he meets with small business owners, middle class taxpayers, around corporate leaders. friday he tried to recapture his winning spirit in pennsylvania touring a toy manufacturing plant. i don't think the event is in whoville but the republicans as grinch playbook is probably evident enough. to hear some of the president's team, they see this christmas going their way. >> i think we're going to get this done. i'm more positive than most. i'm heartened b
for president obama want free stuff, it sure sounds a lot like what mitt romney was saying in that fund-raiser about the 47% of americans. >> uh-huh. >> it really sounds like these guys not only don't get it, they don't care what the americans want. they have their agenda. they have their ideology, and they're still going to try to pursue it, not recognizing that it was roundly rejected, but here is the most important thing. we, the people, will have to be the ones who hold them accountable. i think the president will obviously fight it, but this goes to something that the president has talked about many times, which is there is more work to be done and we have to make sure that we apply the political pressure to hold these guys accountable. >> joy, karen is absolutely right and toure, they are not listening. they have learned nothing. >> yeah. >> literally in the heat of election defeat, they have learned nothing. >> and there was a ceo that even wrote an open letter to the president saying, mr. president, we're ready to work with you by having you do everything mitt romney was going t
call today or visit your local walgreens. >>> it would appear mitt romney has moved on from the election, the 47% and his post-election comments to donors about gifts the president handed out to voters. here he is at disneyland looking like the terminator. for him the election is truly over. for his republican counterparts, here's speaker boehner on an editorial on the fiscal cliff. he makes it very clear that the battle over obama care is far from over. he says, quote, the tactics of our repeal efforts will have to change. we need to repeal obama care and enact common sense, step by step reforms that start with lowering the cost of health care. clearly speaker boehner hasn't quite accepted the fact that the president was re-elected by an overwhelming majority. nope, is he right back to defending the 1% and corporate welfare at the expense of none other than the middle class. for more, we go to joy reid, managing either of grio.com and jared bernstein. welcome to you both. >> nice to be here. >> earlier we asked you to come up with a figure, because you know i have -- like a
was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach. i want a big deal. i want a comprehensive deal. >> too bad these guys can't see the writing on the wall. >> the congress opposes tax hikes. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. >> i don't support raising tax rat rates. >> period? >> yeah. i've been saying that my entire career. >> we have majority of america who recognizes if we're serious about deaf dit reduction we have to did it in a balanced way. >> response to a range of questions at his first press conference since winning re-election. in the east room of the white house, the president took to the podium to press his agenda for the next four years. quickly dispatching a first question on the petraeus affair, saying he had no evidence any classified information was disclosed. then it was on to dismiss concerns that he could cave again on tax cuts for the rich with the impending fiscal cliff. >> what i said at the time is what i meant. which is, this was a one-time propositi
and hopeful wish. michelle, when romney's economic adviser says average rates on the rich need to go up, when bill kristol tells republicans, don't fall on your sword over the bush tax cuts, does that suggest mandate or no mandate? >> it suggests that even the republican party itself is very, very nervous about where it has landed. and everyone who isn't paul ryan or a lot of his house colleagues who are kind of still fighting that last battle, they're really looking for the party to do some soul searching and figure out a way that they can come up with an agenda that people will like. otherwise, they're going to find themselves doing this again in two years. >> back to you, dana. we know that, as i said earlier, mr. boehner has been ee re-elec. what about mitch mcconnell. he sounds as object strucktive as he has over the last four years. what's going to happen to him? >> i went to his photo op yesterday where he unveiled new members of the republican freshman class. they could have had that in a broom closet because there were only three of them and they were sitting there nodding their head
